    I have IBS and do sometimes have cramping without needing to go to the bathroom. As with IC each of us are different in our symptoms and how we respond to treatment. It's always helpful to keep track of your symptoms and let your doctor know about them - particularly new or severe symptoms.

    HI Usually I get the severe cramping and then the diarrehea.....but I'm not sure about just the cramping...maybe it can happen that way. Maybe your GP can try you on one of the IBS meds that's out now and see if that helps you. Good luck! Roxie

    Thanks. Do you get the cramping but, no need to go to bathroom? Thats where I am confused. Usually if I get the cramps it is then shortly there after that I am in the bathroom. But this morning it was just this intense cramping w/bowel pressure. I took something for the pain which helped.

    HI! I've had IBS since I was 19.....I'm 51 now. I used to always have severe cramping in the morning.....after breakfast. I'd feel fine when I'd get up and then eat breakfast....then the severe cramping would start.....and then diarrehea........I also would suffer from the constipation part......it was always the pits.
    Many dr.s over the year used to tell me to eat more fiber....and that would help with the IBS......so I've tried every dang fiber product out there....to no avail....and I've used many of the IBS meds too.
    What finally has helped me was what a dr. told me early on...EAT PRUNES! Prunes are high in fiber and very healthy for you. So I eat 5 or 6 dried prunes with my breakfast every morning! and I haven't had an IBS incident in over 2 yrs now! It's great! I hope you can get a handle on your problem....it sounds like IBS to me.....Roxie

    ibs?

    Ok I have had a bad day. I need help with this. is this IBS or is it a flare?
    I have had last night and today some serious cramping followed by running into the bathroom. my GP thinks I might have IBS but am not diagnosed with it.
    So this morning it happens again then my stomach is just crampy so that i am doubled over but not needing to go in to bathroom. ( I tried but nothing) It was just this cramping. I had some bowel pressure with it.
    Does any of this sound familer? Is it IBS or just my IC? I would love any input. thanks
Working...
